Huh, so I just watched Valerian and maaaan, now I’m sad it tanked. It’s a great movie!!! I don’t know why people panned it that much =(
Okay sure the leads weren’t the most charismatic, but they were actually fine. The story was pretty good in a very classical sci-fi way (which is only normal considering what it’s adapted from), and the whole “universe buidling” and the accompanying visual are incredibly excellent.
Edit: Oh also, best movie intro ever =P
Imo, this was waaaay better than SW (new ones at the very least) and Avatar, yet those two made billions… people are weird. The worst part is after that massive tank, there’s no hope of a second one.
Not a great year for pure sci-fi it seems, first Ghost in the Shell, and amazing movie as well, and then this one tanked… I think Blade Runner didn’t do too good at the BO either (haven’t seen it though). Pfff what a shame. Meanwhile Fast & Furious is making obscene amounts of money. Oh humanity…
